November 2012

Graeme has now got planning permission for his own brewery in a barn at his parents' farm just outside Workington so next year he will be brewing them himself!


October 2011

As the Bitter End brewery has been closed, beers are no longer brewed there.

Bavarian Hefe Weiss beer was voted Beer of the Festival at last weekend's Workington Oktoberfest.


September 2010

the Bavarian Hefe Weiss and the Pale are now brewed locally in Cockermouth, Cumbria by Mike Askey and Steve Hebblethwaite at Bitter End Brewing Company.



Graeme Mitchell is interested in brewing but as there are a lot of breweries in Cumbria, he thought he would focus on continental beer styles, initially bottled.

Beer has so far been brewed by Andy Hepworth and his company, Hepworth & Co in Horsham, West Sussex, who are an established, award-winning brewer of ales and lagers of distinction. They are committed to using local ingredients and are accredited by the Soil Association for the production and packaging of organic beers.
